* Really, just about any solid pet/owner friendship. Most domesticated animals quite enjoy human company.

* People who keep pet mice can't allow males to live with one another, as they fight when confined together. Nor can they be housed long-term with female mice unless neutered, which is risky surgery for such tiny pets. Rather than leave a male alone, it's increasingly common to house them with female African soft-fur rats (''Mastomys natalensis''), which are mouse-sized and get along well with true mice, grooming and snuggling together, yet can't interbreed.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' has [[FemaleFelineMaleMutt Rita and Runt]]. However, Runt doesn't like cats, and this friendship only exists because he doesn't know--or refuses to acknowledge--that Rita is feline.

* At Noah's Ark animal sanctuary in Georgia, an African lion, a Bengal tiger, and an American black bear all share the same enclosure. The three were rescued from a drug dealer's house as cubs, and they have lived together as the best of friends for over a decade, even acting out and getting distressed when sanctuary personnel tried to split them up. What makes the arrangement even more unusual is that black bears and Bengal tigers in the wild are solitary creatures who rarely associate even with their own kind. Also, wild Bengal tigers ''eat'' bears that size.
